A few of us are interested in getting this chapter up and rolling. Ive read the chapter is open sticky at the top, and would like to see what the next step is to us getting a chapter leader, or a moderator, or whatever it takes! Thanks to any admin's or moderator's that can help!
Hey Preppy it was suggested to me that we need to find a chapter leader before we can really get things rolling. I guess the best be is to see of there is any response to your cry for some assistance. Can we PM admin and maybe get some help that way?
Here's a quick overview... (Copied and Pasted from the Gen. Chapter Discussion forum)
Chapter Overview And Rules
In order to start a Chapter you must have minimum of 5 FTE members willing to join. Each member must be an active FTE user for at least 30 days. The member organizing the Chapter must be an FTE user for at least 60 days.
Once the Chapter is formed, you must organize an off-line meeting of the Chapter to elect a Chapter Leader and any additional officers your Chapter may need such as secretary, treasurer, photographer, etc. Each Chapter needs to have one or more persons with a digital camera so Chapter related photos can be maintained in the Chapter Gallery.
The Chapter Leader is responsible for seeking out new Chapter members on the FTE forums (we provide the tools for this), overseeing the organization of events, meetings and gatherings. Additionally, we encourage Chapter members to seek out new members at auto shows, fellow Ford owners in the work place and Ford truck owners you may encounter in your day-to-day life. You may even consider telling local dealerships or auto parts stores about your Chapter.
According to my User CP, I'm a member of the Alberta/BC Chapter. Does that count?
I already got 2 people to join FTE, although I haven't asked them if they've joined the BC Chapter yet. One of those 2 people told the parts guy at a Ford dealer about FTE, and he was going to check it out.
